I'm hoping he gets this sorted out and report back. I'm in the same boat....kinda. I don't want to hijack thread so I'll chill and wait to see what happens here

Lol, well I changed my mind on the hyjack mainly due to Scoobum precisely saying that the 6262 should be ported before install a while back. I heard him, but didn't listen. Lol. I'm taking the turbo off soon to port and match the new downpipe and we'll see what happens then.

A lot of broken parts does not make you a racer; it makes you a slow learner.

Please tell me you ordered the correct alky chip...and you're not trying to get a street chip to work. I have vids on my channel on how to install head gaskets...

What's wrong with that? Now using a alky chip without alky well that could be problematic

Nothing as long as you can dial it in. It's probably gonna be fat at WOT.


Before alky chips came along we made do with what we had. I ran a thrasher race gas chip with pump/alky - everyone thought I was nuts until they saw it work.

You're right...run it with a street chip. Eric has a street, alky, race, and E85 chip for a reason. Read up on each one of his chips...each is a different animal. That's the biggest problem with these cars. People don't read...and they don't listen.

That's the difference. You and Scoob know how to tune. Those that don't...and most don't...will end up with engine damage. I'm running Erics race chip in my car right now with the timing backed off...but I sure as hell wouldn't tell anyone else to do it.

I also think it's important to note that the reason I bought the alky kit was to test my O2's in third at the same boost. If my car cant run properly at 17lbs of boost with a little alky sprayed, there is a problem anyway. There is no point in an alky chip until I get everything else running and tuned properly. Fast forward to the present, we come to learn that my passenger side header is cracking, which explains the lean O2's in third gear at any boost level, whether 12lbs or 17lbs.
